But… but… Cake would never lie to me!
I also remember Georgia saying at some point that Lupin’s distrust of other cats may have stemmed from his deafness. Strangers don’t know he can’t hear them approach, so they constantly startle him without meaning to. But she also said that in the short time Lupin and Iggy shared a home, they got along beautifully and played together like two kittens. This also led to Ora Zella’s adoption. When Lupin was gone, the three (stately) elders couldn’t deal with his energy. Iggy needed another youngster to keep him busy.
I bet Tommy’s Woman and all the others at the shelter already know. I think Iggy and Ora got the wrong idea about adoption somewhere along the way. Maybe they overheard something and misinterpreted, or maybe only singletons have been adopted since they’ve been there. So for them, adoption = 1 kitty gets a new home.
Last night’s episode of Nature was about the tiny population of ocelots that still exist in the United States. OMC, those kitties are BEAUTIFUL! (and interesting) pbs.org/wnet/nature/about-american-ocelot/27932/ Sorry, I don’t know if folks outside the U.S. will be able to watch the video.
OT but cat related.
I always thought Austin Powers’ Alotta F. gag was a little over the top. Kinda obvious and juvenile. Then I found out about P. Galore and it all made sense. One of those cases where the parody is actually LESS ridiculous than the original.
I have experienced horsehair in the walls. I grew up in a house built in 1930. I now live in apartments that are old enough to have horsehair in the walls, but they are covered with drywall/sheetrock with a popcorn finish.
Fun fact: stud finders do NOT work through popcorn finish. at least not the ones I tried. I use a rare earth magnet to find the drywall screws and deduce the stud locations from there. I’m not supposed to put holes in the walls, but I do anyway. My security deposit was gone 6 days after I moved in when I missed the deadline to submit the list of pre-existing damage.
I have a new phone, and it has no clue what to do with my typos that involve a mistake in the first letter of a word. It assumes the first letter is always right and tries to guess from there. Like my thumbs know what they’re doing at the beginning of a word but not the end? My thumbs NEVER know what they’re doing.
Couldn’t he just make 10 louder?
I’m away in a place with warm breezes and blue water, so I’ve been keeping up with the daily strips, but that’s about all. I’d love to be able to watch when I get back.
(Warm breezes and blue water paid for by others, otherwise it would never happen. Travel package also includes family bickering.)
